New formats - Akustikhane
The new reality did not stop the musicians at all, on the contrary - it challenged them to find new forms. Today about the wonderful Istanbul project Across by Akustikhane, the program in which old and well-known musicians and friends improvise, without a live audience.
A peaceful Christmas to all, and let there be invisible snowflakes, just like in the music of Tchaikovsky! A cosy warm place and favourite people. Happy Holidays!
The different 2020
And this winter, with New Year's Eve approaching, we collect the music we listened to during 2020 - the year of masks, distance, tests. But also a year of optimism and compassion. A year in which the world lost some of its innocence, but also to become more united and empathetic.
The blues of the Aegean or the blues of the Mediterranean - that's what music critics call an album that found us in Ayvalik. Today we listen to Çiğdem Aslan - a singer about whom the press says: "She hides both a lioness and a nightingale."
This playlist took quite some time to conceive. Today we will listen to different, colourful, unpopular music. Music that moves on a weird, but continuous axis - Africa, Japan, Brazil, through Lebanon to Turkey, and somewhere in the midst of things some Berlin vibes also get added.
